What Are Some Popular Social Work Courses Offered Online?


Some popular social work courses offered online include options from The Open University, the Boston University School of Social Work and the University of Notre Dame. Most of these free options don't provide students with credits, instead introducing students to the field or supplementing knowledge for existing students.

The Open University, which features the largest number of available classes, offers several notable social work courses, including introductory classes, interviews with professionals in the field, and in-depth analysis of how social connections and government policies shape society at large. Other advanced courses teach students how to apply prevailing social theories to welfare-to-work models.
